Portable, streamlined and minimalistic surgical navigation system for surgeons seeking focused functionality

Kick EM offers many setup possibilities– including supine, lateral, prone or sitting patient positions

Smart Connections & Setup Flexibility

Kick® EM1 is a unique streamlined navigation platform with a small footprint for frameless procedures. Its minimalistic design makes Kick EM portable and easy to setup. Ideal for small O.R.s or as an add-on system for easy pointer navigation at larger facilities. Kick EM consists of three parts: the field generator, the connection panel and the Kick monitor cart. The field generator, fixed with a flexible arm for optimized patient setup, creates the electromagnetic field around the patient’s head. The connection panel, mounted to the O.R. table or directly on the monitor cart, is the interface between the tracking unit and the navigation system. A step-by-step animated workflow guides the user through system setup and ensures a smooth surgical procedure.

  • No line-of-sight issues associated with optical tracking
  • Large tracking volume and articulated arm for flexible positioning of field generator
  • Ergonomic remote control pointer minimizes screen interaction
  • Drapable 21.5” full HD touch display for excellent visualization of clinical data

Freedom of Choice

The compact design of the Kick image guided surgery platform makes it an ideal secondary system for straightforward cranial and ENT procedures. Available with both optical and electromagnetic tracking, surgeons can choose to take advantage of whichever technology best suits their procedure.
